Bouchard looks like the same (albeit concussion is a whole different beast altogether). He's been good in the little stints he's had with the Wild, but he's spent the last 3 years mostly injured. Maybe he will be able to really settle down and get himself healed now that there's no NHL.

And that's really the only thing that could add a positive spin into this ****ing mess.
If you mean he has a resurgence to his career? Could be. I honestly think that anyone believes he's more than one remotely bad hit away from forced retirement is nuts, though.

Selanne had his injury issues, but none of them were concussions - to the best of my knowledge.
